Hallelujah! Paramount Pictures and the fine folks over at Bad Robot (aka JJ Abrams’ people) have finally realized that trying to hide anything on the Internet is like Paris Hilton trying to convince people she’s found Jesus — it ain’t gonna happen. So with that in mind, Paramount has OFFICIALLY released the trailer for Abrams’ “Cloverfield” (aka “1-18-08″) over at Apple.com. (So is the movie now being called “1-18-08″? Maybe. At least, that’s what the mini-poster on the site says.) So if you haven’t seen the trailer yet, or is tired of the crappy cellphone versions we’ve posted in the past (and is available online elsewhere), head over to Apple now by clicking here. Images from the Quicktime hi-def trailer below.
The film being shot under the codename “Cloverfield” revolves around a monster attack in New York as told from the point of view of a small group of people. It is being written by Drew Goddard and directed by Matt Reeves, with J.J. Abrams producing under his Bad Robot shingle.
According to IMDB.com, the film stars Blake Lively, Mike Vogel, Lizzy Caplan, and Michael Stahl-David.
